How to create customer loyalty cards

I have purchased 1000 prepaid with my business details on them for customer loyalty program.
How do I set it up in premier or pos so that when a customer makes a purchase I can scan there card and purchase or loyalty points will be added

Hey,

If you want to use a scanner then you will need to be able to print barcodes onto your customer loyalty cards. Once you have found a way to print a number on such as 123456 you will need to have a prefix of % so the number will look like %123456 and if your scanning into pos using the preprogrammed scanner then if you test on win notepad it will look like ~%123456

Good luck and happy pos-ing

You can get a free barcode font called IDAutomation to generate printed barcodes

Thanks everyone
My cards I have brought already have barcodes on them so I am guessing now I will have to print barcode stickers to replace the ones on card so they have ~% in front of number. I wish the guy who did them knew that when he said they work with quickbooks

They may very well work with that product, after all they will work with Reckon Accounts just not POS as it as a full blown Reckon product and not affiliated with Intuit.

Also remember that you only need the % symbol in front as the barcode scanner its self puts the ~ , so all the cards need to be printed as %123456 and only once there scanned with a barcode scanner for POS will it read as ~%123456.
Probably best to ask for a sample pair before running the whole batch again and save some money while your getting it dialed into what you need :)

Good luck again :) oh also may be worth giving Kevin's suggestion of the free barcode don't a shot, then once you have a working model give that to your printers to replicate.

Happy POSing and remain POSitive he he I couldn't help it

Renai Quickbooks or Intuit is a different piece of software altogether than Reckon in AustralIa as Chris has pointed out its very easy to program the header record to the bar code scanner to account for the percent sign. You do need a Pos specialist I recommend checking the Reckon website for one in your area. I'm in Geelong. Kevin t : 0407744914

Thank you for all your help. I have added the % to barcodes but still when I scan I get CUSTOMER NIT FOUND. THE SELECTED CUSTOMER WAS NOT FOUND IN LIST. i have put in customer details in quickbooks and transferred across in pos administrator. These cards are going to be the death of me lol

Oh well, we tried to get it going, but without seeing whats happening, can't really help you much more.

Best of luck with the next POS product. Let us know what you jump ship to!
